    In past hour one or some of my hubs received almost 39 invalid clicks. Any idea how to remove one's Adsense ID from affiliate settings. Apparently there is no option to do so.

      If you still want your AdSense ID removed from your account, I can do that.  Just send an email to team(at)hubpages(dot)com.  But I'd suggest pursuing it with Google, as I imagine you want to keep earning.

        I just wanted to remove it for a little while when I noticed the clicks so removing it would not affect my earnings in big way.

        Anyways, I don't want it removed now.

        And thanks for replying Maddie. It is a great thing that HubPages care a lot for us hubbers.

    Anyways, whoever you are clicking my ads. Keep doing it because it will only earn me some extra money and won't get me banned. smile

    Edit: This is what I just realized as this clicking thing has been done a couple of times before also.

      how evil of anyone to click adds in the hope of getting you banned! Are there really people who do stuff like that?

          It's a shame that we live amongst some horrible people!


          Hope you do earn some money out of it...

      How do you know you won't get banned? I had 16 clicks a few days ago and I've been worried sick - they came from Hubpages too!

        Because, like I said before, I have experienced this before and Google didn't ban me because they might have figured out that someone just did this to ban me.

      If AdSense determines the clicks to be invalid (ie, the same person clicking over and over), they will be discounted and it won't earn you anything.

        Seems like I only earned a few pennies for the clicks.

    UM, think it would be wise for you to inform Google Adsense about this using the invalid clicks contact form - just to be on the safe side!!

    Yeah just contact Google if you notice this, they have enough ways to figure out if it was you or not!

    The good thing about this is that if you report someone doing this, and the IP they have is logged matches another adsense account ID, they stand a good chance of being banned from the Adsense program.

    There was a press release about this a few years back when the Adsense program suffered from people trying to take out the competition like someone is to you.

    How do we even know were the clicks come from?

      Using 'Channels' within AdSense will tell you which hub received the clicks.

    I hope nobody ever tries doing this to me, this why I avoid religious & politics forums where arguments kick off lol

    I'd also suggest along with teh google channels to get google analytics, so that you can sort of track where people are coming from.  Still it is a horible thing to have happen.  I hope you'll be able to figure out which hub it happened with to better keep an eye on that one.
